One graduate credit will be awarded through The University of Akron upon completion of all graduate credit requirements. Grading for the book study will be either “CR” for Credit or “NCR” for No Credit.
Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics: Developmentally Appropriate Instruction, Third Edition
There are three grade level versions: Pre K-2, 3-5, 6-8
Pre K-2 ISBN: 978-0-134556-43-7
3-5 ISBN: 978-0-134556-42-0
6-8 ISBN: 978-0-134556-41-3
Unfortunately, there is no 9-12 version of this book. However, we believe that high school teachers would benefit from engaging in the book study centered around the 6-8 volume.
